Our Mission & Faith

At CRISTA Senior Living, we firmly believe our duty as a Christian senior living organization transcends the simple provision of a place to live.

At CRISTA Senior Living, we firmly believe our duty as a Christian senior living organization transcends the simple provision of a place to live. Every resident at our Silverdale, WA and Shoreline, WA locations deserves a safe, vibrant and attentive environment that they are proud to call home. People often do not realize what an exciting and invigorating chapter senior living can be in a setting such as a CRISTA community, and we are grateful to provide an experience that goes beyond the norm. The combination of our faith-based values and experience in senior living allow us to foster a community setting unlike any other.

Through its many forms, serving seniors through a Christ-centered approach has been woven into the fabric of our organization since 1949, and helps guide and dictate our operations to this day. Viewing senior stewardship through this lens helps ensure that our purpose, mission, vision and beliefs are not only consistent, but also shaped by a greater design that works in the best interest of both those we serve and those under our employ. We invite you to learn more about the values that make CRISTA Senior Living the organization that it is today.

Our Purpose

CRISTA Senior Living is called to fulfill CRISTA’s mission by being the hands and feet and voice of Christ for people in their later chapters of life. We revere the aged and embrace the opportunity to serve them and equip them for acts of service. We create opportunities for every resident—regardless of health status, financial situation, care needs or background—to experience the truth that Jesus spoke in John 10:10 (NLT), “My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

Our Vision

To transform the lives of those we serve by meeting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs with innovative and personalized solutions, working with mission-driven partners and empowered by a heart of service and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission

To spread the Gospel through service to seniors—cultivating safe and thriving communities where our residents experience grace, encounter Christ’s love and discover renewed purpose.

Our Guiding Principles

Respecting & Valuing Our Elders

Don’t discard me in my old age; as my strength fails, do not abandon me.
Psalm 71:9
Planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still yield fruit in old age.
Psalm 92:13-14

CRISTA Ministries Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that mankind was created in the image of God, all people everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of the damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that God designed marriage as a covenantal bond between one man and one woman, and God’s intent for sexual expression is to occur only in the covenant of marriage.
  • We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for both physical and spiritual needs.
  • We believe that we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives, and to the ministry of evangelism.
